The "Flashing Lights" rapper sparked outrage when he posted a slew of anti-Semitic posts online.
“I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” he previously wrote on October 9.
Trump hasn't publicly spoken about West's controversial remarks, and it's unclear how often they speak, but the Grammy winner still praised the politician.
West called Trump "my boy" while speaking to Tucker Carlson in an interview.
“My so-called friends-slash-handlers around me told me if I said that I liked Trump that my career would be over, that my life would be over,” he stated.

“They said stuff like, ‘People get killed for wearing a hat like that,'” he added, referring to when he visited the White House in 2018 when he wore a "Make America Great Again" hat. “They threatened my life. They basically said that I would be killed for wearing the hat.”
As OK! previously reported, West also spoke out about why he wore a "White Lives Matter" T-shirt to a Paris Fashion Show.
"We are in a battle with the media. The majority of the media has a godless agenda… [But] what I was saying [with] the comparison of Tonya Harding about the White Lives Matter [shirt], my dad is an educated ex-Black Panther and he put a text to me today, he said 'White lives matter, hahahaha,'" West continued. "I said, 'I thought it was a funny shirt. I thought the idea of me wearing it was funny.' And I said 'Dad, why do you think it was funny?' And he said, 'Just a Black man stating the obvious.'"
